LDAP Gateway Bulk Write Operations

UNIFYBroker, acting as a LDAP server, implements a LDAP extension (RFC-4373) which allows for supporting clients to send multiple update requests before waiting for a response. This extension greatly improves performance by lowering network, database, and processing overhead.

The maximun number of requests allowed in one batch is configurable from the Settings page - see LDAP Gateway. The LDAP client should not send more than this number, however client configuration may limit the amount of requests sent to be less than the maximum possible. Caution should be exercised when increasing this value as doing so may cause performance issues.

It is recommended, if the option is available, to use a bulk supporting LDAP client when large amounts of write operations are expected.
